btrfs: Bindings to the btrfs API

This is a package candidate release! Here you can preview how this package release will appear once published to the main package index (which can be accomplished via the 'maintain' link below). Please note that once a package has been published to the main package index it cannot be undone! Please consult the package uploading documentation for more information.


This package provides low-level bindings to the btrfs API (i.e. the BTRFS_IOC_* ioctls). Currently, only a subset of the API is supported, including functions needed to work with subvolumes/snapshots as well as file cloning.

In order to build this package, you need to linux-headers 3.9 or newer.

Warning: btrfs is still considered experimental. This module is also experimental and may contain serious bugs that may result in data loss. Do not use it on data that has not been backed up yet.
